This mix favors Bob a lot, so it really gives you a chance to see what an excellent rhythm guitarist he is. 1978 was all about fast hard strumming and the Promised Land has both Jerry and Bob duke 'em out at the song's end, I loved it.

Agreed with direwolf below; this is a good aud, and probably even preferred due to the special magnificence with the way the show opens. I've grown, like many, to appreciate auds but still find audience noise and hollering irritating - here it actually works in favor of a better recording. You can practically taste the teeth-grinding, spine-clenching tension that the acid and whatnot has the crowd all hot and bothered over - when Hamza El-Din takes the stage with his oud there is undoubtedly a current he is aware of that he needs to ride this one out on - and to hear the roars of approval when the band takes the stage to jam on "Ollin Arageed" is just the break in that tension needed. I could listen to Jerry hit those same three 'theme' notes for this tune over and over again forever - when all is said and done the poignancy of being able to have this recording, the band delivering with genuine love their experiences from Egypt, touches this deadhead in particular very deeply.

Well, now, back to earth - once the band coasts into a cleverly ironic (or not?) "Promised Land" we get a rather routine first set - the energy they played off of from that extraordinary opening really just lets them sail through the rest of the set without too much worry or care. Not badly done by any means, but they're more or less just sifting through the ashes of Ollin Arageed.

Set 2 - now, *here's* the juice of this show - Estimated has a solo from Jer that goes on and on and on, certainly the pre-drums highlight. Post-drums is pretty famous stuff - Lee Oskar, the mojo workin', the utterly mind-blowing finish to the Other One (after the 2nd verse!)....just don't overlook the rest of the set - all of it is gorgeous, Stella and Sugar and dig that U.S. Blues encore!

Subject: With the SBDs gone, this is the one.
This is a fantastic show, with a big time AUD. They released this some months ago with Road Trips Volume 1 Number 4, so all the SBDs and the Matrix previously available are gone from the archive. Thankfully, we have an AUD like this for the masses. If you like Audience recordings, you'll love this, if you hate them, this might help you with your problem.

Usually I like to review a show tune by tune. This whole show spits fire. Special mention of TOO> Stella. Rip-roaring Grateful Dead and nothing less.
